should you arianna in in the pantheon. one of the things about the hybrid of old media in india that i think we have to remember is that old media isn't really that old. it's a about 60, 70 years old in this coach. at the beginning of this country there was a social vibrant media in which there wasn't some mainstream publication, when ben franklin arrived in philadelphia is a 17 your runway there were 11 newspapers, one for each faction, be the anglicans or the quakers, you know, different groups. and he started the 12th representing the market street middle-class. and he also relied on contributions, social media, people for his paper were basically riding as arianna said because they wanted to bear witness to the struggle that was happening in the 1700s in america. they also occasionally as on the internet wrote anonymously. ben franklin famously used a pseudonym. but as they were doing it they had the hybrid as arianna and tim have created at aol and "huffington post." of the values of journalism that within him urging as well as the guy of social media and contributing and being pa
